  1. Add the categories feature.

    On the page after you clicked “Storage Metrics – Lists”, there are names of lists displayed in line.
    I hope that it can also display the categories of lists just as the same as it displayed in “Site Content”

  2. Enable Permissive Browser File Handling

    I think it would be useful if one could enable "Permissive Browser File Handling" per SubSite instead of doing it for entire Site Collections.

    Or if one could refine the granularity even further: "Per Folder" would be even better! - so one could run little HTML projects from within a Document Library, without compromising the security of any other collection, site or folder.

  3. SharePoint and SharePoint Online Change Log

    I'd like to see a change log to SharePoint On-Premises and SharePoint Online and of course the rest of the services/servers.

    What I have in mind is a chronological, grouped by CU/PU/SP for on-premises versions and by date for the services, change log with all the changes to API's, PowerShell cmdlets and features. Very much like the Office Roadmap.

    For instance in the July SharePoint CU we have a new addition to the cmdlets that allows us to bypass the search protocol handlers. In August we had a security update that change the EnableScript for Ribbon buttons added by apps…

  10. healthy company

    Microsoft should provide the companies of a good security system for the documents and websites and an easy oversight of needs of a director: writing letters, contact via mail and video. The rest, inside information and contacts belongs to the company.

  11. Consistent labelling and navigation in Sharepoint Admin Center

    Better align labelling of objects and features especially where the object is alive and there are stages to configuring and then using it. I.e. don't use one label at the point of setting up the object to then use a completely different label for the same value after it's been created. Consistent labelling of objects and features across views please i.e. App Secret is referred to when creating / connecting an App but after the app is created there's no reference to the App secret via the admin center. It can be retreived via some Powershell but for something that's…

  12. add an option to a specific file to be set as "Must check-out"

    I have a file that I want to be accessed and updated, only if the user checks-out the file. I do not want others to be able to download a copy of this checked out file.
